Sat. 15th June 2019 I would not normally call setting a 6am alarm sensible but, as the weather forecast shows temperatures of 30° by 10am, I submit. As we are thinking of walking along Whip Snake Gorge which is a …

Fri. 7th June 2019 It was our best nights sleep yet in the roof tent. No wind and little noise until 6:45am, even though the campsite is quite busy. We are impressed with the facilities and tuck into our breakfast …
